Lenovo's new C315 all-in-one PC begs the question: Who's buying these things?

Summary:Other than iMacs, I'm not sure that all-in-one PC designs are actually big sellers. Nonetheless, companies like HP and Dell keep cranking them out.

Other than iMacs, I'm not sure that all-in-one PC designs are actually big sellers. Nonetheless, companies like HP and Dell keep cranking them out. Also in the club is Lenovo, which has launched a new model, the C315, that aims for the budget buyer, just like the two new laptops it also announced today.

For a starting price of $649, the C315 provides a choice of AMD Athlon II processors with ATI Mobility Radeon graphics, so don't expect hardcore performance. It comes with 4GB of RAM and a 20-inch touchscreen display, which you can use Lenovo's suite of touch-optimized apps (cleverly called IdeaTouch). The C315 will be available starting in April.

Would you buy one? I'm still not convinced there's a huge market for these designs in the Windows world, though we seem to be on an inevitable touch-based path in the future. But maybe I'm wrong. Let us know your opinions—especially in you have a PC flavor of all-in-one—in the TalkBack section.
